Sunday Selections # 222



Welcome back to Sunday Selections!

This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.

The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
  Andrew often joins in too.

I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week my theme is:

Autumn Skies in Adelaide

The photos speak for themselves, so there is no commentary.




























imagine the sunsets these might have made! 
but they were all taken before noon over a couple of days, with all blue skies by mid afternoon.

Now for a bit of whimsy>>

  1. Laura and I were admiring our May sky as we went about out Saturday morning errands.

  2. Our skies have looked a little like that too. Very little water has fallen from them though. The solar lights have been struggling. They come on very briefly and fade, not having had enough light to charge them.
    Love your bit of whimsy.

  3. The clouds are quite special in the photos where there is also a house chimney and tv aerial. We have had two reasonable sunny days in a couple of weeks, it seems. Back to grey this morning.

  4. Hi River,

    Those overhead shots of your autumnal season look just about the same as a summer day in England. Nicely done, River.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  5. Friday and Saturday were very grey, dark grey and wet up this way; but the sky is clear and blue once again.

    Have a great week ahead, River...cuddles to Angel. Take care. :)

  7. Those clouds are beautiful and so many different types too. The autumn skies in Perth so far this year have been BLUE and if or when a cloud appears it does not bring any rain. They are once again promising an 80% chance of rain today...perhaps, maybe or whenever. So far, just more blue skies but we can always hope.
    Love your picture of Harvey Banana. Hope his rellies receive his email OK. (*:*)

  8. Joanne; autumn and spring skies have so much to offer :D

    Elephant's Child; it's been dry here too, in spite of several small rainfalls, all my pots were dry and the garden soil not much better. So I went out yesterday morning and gave it all a good soaking. There's a few things that need to be pulled out, maybe even the marigolds, the whole area just looks ratty. I planted the bulbs and now I wish I hadn't because I've had a new plan rattling around in my head. I miss having a whole yard to mess about in, make mistakes in.
    Harvey always makes me smile.

    Delores; me too, I like watching the clouds change shape as the wind blows them about.

    Andrew; you like a little earth in your astral?

    klahanie; I think I'd enjoy summer in England, but not your winters.

    Lee; skies are blue here today too, and will be bluer tomorrow, we have clouds but they seem to be just passing through.

    Barbara; I like clouds especially when they keep changing.
    My Nullabor story began in Alaska, went to tropical South America, now in Australia. Who knows where next?

    Mimsie; thanks, I do love cloud watching. hope you get some rain soon, a good soaking rain, not a cloudburst where the water will just run off and disappear.
    Maybe Harvey is the reason I keep running out of internet allowance (*~*)

  9. I'm not even sure what types of clouds these are. They're not quite the puffy sort but really not storm-like. Some of them look like a herd of sheep running about. :)

  10. Happy Christine; I think they're Stratocumulus, but I can't be 100% sure.
